Cocktail of the week: Madam’s Iced Chocolate

While our city may be famous for coffee, there are a few other cafe classics which don’t get the rep they deserve. Nothing beats a good Italian biscuit, a giant milkshake that comes with the extra mix in the metal glass or a simple, old-fashioned iced chocolate. Coming into summer we’re going to be sipping an iced chocolate with attitude.

The Mess Hall’s Madam’s Iced Chocolate is not only an alcoholic take on the classic, but a way of celebrating an old after-school favourite by spicing it up a bit. Its base is a brown ale reduction, which is heated slowly, adding cocoa as it simmers, reduces and thickens. This adult iced chocolate will make your inner-child scream for ice-cream.

INGREDIENTS

45 ml house-made reduction of Brown Ale and cocoa

30 ml kraken dark spice rum

10 ml Jameson Irish whisky

Two drops of bitter-end barbeque bitters

METHOD

Carefully measure each ingredient into a cocktail shaker.

Fill the remainder with ice.

Shake like you have never shook before.

Double strain into a decadent glass fit for a garden party.

Toast a marshmellow and use to garnish rim.

Enjoy.
